Somewhere in Japan there are lot of executives trying to figure out why the Americans don't want mirrorless cameras. Hint:two of the primary players (Olympus and Panasonic) have poor dealer and Big Box reach in the US: buyers just don't see them like they do Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

We in the US wait for months for the stock to appear. If they can't sell the cameras here it's because we don't receive any in time when the public is actually interested in them. When the cameras become finally available six months after the release the momentum is totally lost.

Some advertising would help too.

and see what went right.

The E-pl1.

It was presented at an attractive price, in Big Box stores with Kit deals, multiple lenses, etc. and was the ONLY u 4/3 camera that had a national advertising campaign (remember the cute lady walking around looking for something to take a picture of?).

To this day, three years after its introduction it is still an Amazon Top Ten selling CSC camera!

Why not just repeat that formula?
